FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

AAAI/KDD/UAI-2002 Joint Workshop on Real-Time Decision Support and
Diagnosis Systems

Monday 29 July 2002
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

http://www.kddresearch.org/KDD/Workshops/RTDSDS-2002/

While AI methodologies are being applied towards increasingly
realistic domains that require timely responses, real-time systems are
coming to incorporate decision-making tools that require more
intelligent capabilities.  Many real-world intelligent systems call
for autonomous intelligent agents acting in the face of uncertain
knowledge and limited computational resources.  Real-time decision
support and diagnosis systems are two such important application
domains.

--- PARTICIPATION

This workshop will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in
the area of uncertain reasoning (UAI), real-time artificial
intelligence (RTAI), and real-time knowledge discovery in databases
(KDD).  Participation in the workshop is by invitation.  If interested
in attending, please send a one-paragraph statement of interests and
your contact information (name, affiliation, and e-mail) to

rtdsds-2002 at www.kddresearch.org

so that the workshop organizers can reply with workshop registration
information.  We anticipate participation by 25-50 people at the
workshop.


--- Topics

Active research topics that are relevant to real-time decision support
and diagnosis include:

- real-time expert systems
- embedded intelligent diagnosis agents
- anytime uncertain reasoning algorithms and flexible computation
- cost estimation for resource-bounded computation
- decision-theoretic planning and deliberative real-time artificial
intelligence
- real-time Bayesian network inference and learning techniques
- real-time algorithms for scheduling and situated planning
- real-time sensor fusion and situation assessment
- real-time knowledge discovery in databases (KDD)

--- Format

The full-day workshop will include two (2) invited talks and
specialized tutorials on state-of-the-art research problems and
methodologies, six (6) presentations, seven (7) short talks by
selected participants, and four (4) panel and open discussion sessions
on key topics.
